When Qui-Gon falls ill during a mission to find a missing comrade, Obi-Wan is forced to assume the role of Master in order to ensure Qui-Gon's survival.

    Summary

    The lonely but misanthropic Samara Lavellan begins a long and trying journey at her Keeper's behest, only to witness the destruction of the Conclave and, slowly, begin her journey as the Herald of Andraste and Inquisitor.

    Along the way, she finds herself inexorably drawn to a certain spirit-- perhaps to the point of obsession --and learns to manage the pain of her past. Said past is rife with troubles; including traumatic memory loss, mild disfigurement, murder, and lost love. Samara's path will be a dark and lonely one: unless she can overcome the burdens of her past and let the pain go...

    But something dark lurks in the shadows of Samara's mind, begging to be set free. Will she be overcome by the monsters from the Breech, or the ones in her own head?

    Editing to disclaim: This is a long story that includes Colemance, rather than a Colemance solely for its own sake (though I may make one later).

    Summary

    There comes a time when being “someone” never matters to anyone; there comes a time where someone lays on a bed and stares at the ceiling and never even thinks about the ceiling. A time where they want to be a boy instead of a girl, a musician instead of a famous lip-singer, a bass player instead of no one. There came a time when “Lee Rose” never mattered to me and the person next to me, with either one thing or another, mattered more than life itself. The time where morning became night, where people changed the world with their thoughts, and where I wasn’t thinking about dying for once. Where I thought about living and someone thought about staying for once in my lifetime.

     

    And for once, there came a time where I felt alive once again.

     

    The music mattered to me again.
